It takes a very special person to take a story as amazing as that of the 332nd and turn it into such a terrible movie. Few people have the skill to ruin such excellent source material.

Another attack on the fandom from the Kennedy camp.

Iger knew Star Wars-- so when things came across his desk, he had input from a fan standpoint. Chapek doesn't seem to really have his own opinions, and that opens the door for him to take whatever opinions he's given. Iger drastically changed the development of TFA (unprecedented involvement on TFA's script and direction) and Rise with much of the same direct input, love it or hate it-- at least he showed some interest in the welfare of the franchise.

This Chapek guy is likely a major woketard via just not being "all there" as a CEO. A hair worse than just living in Iger's shadow.

Star Wars is in the hands of a fuckwit.

People used to have to do time in the trenches before they were given their own ball to run with. It was the norm damn near in everything. People seem to have forgotten that it takes hard work to get good at something in addition to being talented. Jerry Seinfeld is a perfect example of this. It took him 5 years to become an overnight success. This is also a prime example of why comedians these days are pure trash. None of them had to spend any time in night clubs honing their craft.

These days, they give inexperienced hacks entire franchises to screw around with. RJ went to production with the FIRST DRAFT of his Star Wars script. Shit like that would have gotten you shot 20 years ago.

There are exceptions to this, but by and large people had to get good by doing over a period of time. Now they show up and run with the first thing they pinched out and then wonder why no one likes their work.

yep, i was just watching the Critical Drinker's review of the 2015 Fantastic 4 movie. basically, they gave Josh Trank a 120 million dollar budget to make the movie when his previous work was some low budget super hero movie that was just ok. dude didnt even try to learn what Fantastic 4 was about. nobody cared, they just said make the fucking thing and send it through. the guy couldnt even handle that. he made some halfassed mess that wasnt even fleshed out and then started binge drinking and scoring drugs and stopped working on the movie and got fired. then he blamed the studio. pretty funny.

Hollywood is just egos/politics, money laundering and sex trafficking. Quality product is low on the prioroty list.

It's not hard. You hire people who love the IP, translate it faithfully to the big screen with adequate time/funding and the fanbase will market it for you via word of mouth.

I'm talking about the kind of fuckwit that thinks there is huge demand for Rian Johnson's trilogy based on the 1.3b box office of TLJ.

Being morbidly obese at his age and stepping into that role speaks further to something being up with this guy. I'm struggling to think of fat CEO's of fortune 500's that were promoted into the role while being 200 pounds overweight. As you said, they truly had nobody else and Iger was tired and old. Nail on head.

the other problem is with their diversity hires failing upwards because nobody wants them in their departments so they end up running those companies because it would be bigoted not to. they werent qualified to get coffee, but now they are expected to make sure a billion dollar corporation is profitable?

Iger personally promoted Kiri Hart to the closet. We'll likely never see anyone held responsible for anything under Chapek's watch.

Especially not a person of color. Kiri's removal as Vice President of Story at Lucas Film was bold. She didn't even get demoted or placed on another project. She got sent to the closet.

If it's 3 hours and 45 minutes of unseen footage it might have a chance!
